Tony Momrelle with full live band at 5 Star Soul
Tony Momrelle is one of the hottest tickets on the UK R&B and soul scenes right now and is understandably drawing praise from high places as the Incognito vocalist steps into the spotlight to reveal a mighty fine solo artist in the ascendancy. He kick-started his career as a backing vocalist for Gloria Estefan, and then went on to work for Whitney Houston, Sir Elton John, Take That and most recently Sade. Tony Momrelle is perhaps best known for his long and fruitful association with those bastions of live soulful groove, Incognito. His consistently tip-top vocals on the road impressed Incognito main man Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick to the extent of offering him a spot on both the band’s 2002 album Life Stranger Than Fiction and their relentless international tour dates.
But now Tony is ready to focus fully on himself. His 2015 album Keep Pushing (Reel People Music) launched him firmly into the realm of solo star, with the title track hitting number one on the UK Soul Charts. He also received a nomination for Best Male Vocalist from SoulTracks and recently appeared on Later…With Jools Holland.
As well as being lead vocalist for the fantatsic British Acid Jazz band Incognito Tony has toured with some of the greatest artists in the world: Earth, Wind & Fire, Gloria Estefan, Celine Dion, Janet, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Sade, Gary Barlow, Andrea Bocelli, Gwen Stefani, Robert Palmer, Gospel music group Seven and many more. With his new Album being released in April Tony is bringing his unique sound to Essex.
DJ's also on the night 5 star soul residents Brian Kelly, Lee Alder & Jon Ovel
